Review: Palmer’s Spray Lotion For Instant Cooling

Founded in America more than 170 years ago in 1842, Palmer’s has become one of the world’s leading names in skincare, a brand that women around the world have grown up with. Their unique heritage and commitment to quality has stood the test of time. Generations of families have loved the fantastic moisturizing qualities of Palmer’s skincare range, and millions of women around the world agree.

Their #1 formula, Cocoa Butter Formula, is one of Palmer’s key offering in its wide range of skincare. Do watch the video above for more details of the wonders of Cocoa Butter and how it is beneficial for your skin!

What makes Palmer one of the leading skincare brand is not only the social responsibility of being against animal testing, but also making full use of these key ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Vitamin E to create products that moisturise and work their magic on women's skin!

Cocoa Butter: a rich natural moisturizer that leaves skin soft and silky, transforming even the roughest, driest areas into buttery soft skin.
Shea Butter: deeply moisturizes and nourishes to leave dry soft and radiant
Vitamin E: a powerful antioxidant that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and imperfections on the skin, giving a more even and toned appearance.
Sonia Siu, my favourite celebrity model, is a fan of Palmer's products and is the brand ambassador at the moment. Now we all know how she achieves her smooth and flawless skin, just look at this TVC, so gorgeous!
That's the product I'll be reviewing today: Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion. It uses a unique delivery system and Rapidsorb ® Technology which is non-aerosol based and uses no propellants to deliver fine sprays which allow the lotions to be very quickly absorbed into the skin, providing deep moisture in an instant. This non-greasy formula sprays on easily and allows for quick absorption, leaving skin soft and smooth with 24 hour moisturization. Plus, it's paraben & phthalate free!
One of the first thing I notice and love is the design of the bottle; a unique narrow to wide design that makes Palmer's products stand out and provides a good gripe. There's also a lock function so you can lock it up before throwing it into your bag to avoid having any unwanted mess!

The Rapidsorb ® Technology as mentioned above ensured a fine and smooth spray experience every single time. Why do I emphasize on that is because there are some products that gives a staggered and uneven spray, which can be annoying especially when you're rushing for time.
This is how the concentrated lotion looks like if you spray too close to your skin. For optimal results, it's best to spray 3-4 inches away, in a circular motion before rubbing it gently into the skin for better absorption. I would suggest to use this in the bathroom as the product can cause the floors to be slippery.
Skin feels smooth and less scaly after the spray. I do find this a little oily when first applied, thankfully it gets absorbed into the skin after sometime to provide the moisture that my skin needs. I'm thinking of getting another bottle to put in my office too :)

There are also other variants you might like:
Palmer’s Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion (Aloe) – For instant cooling
Palmer’s Stretch Mark Spray Lotion – For reducing the appearance of stretch marks

These products, especially Palmer’s Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion is available at Watsons, Guardian, Fairprice, BHG, Robinsons, John Little and leading cosmetic stores for S$17.90/200g! LAst but not least, do follow their Facebook page for new updates and free samples too :)

Review: Owndays PC (Blue Shield) Lenses

A few months ago, I posted a guide & review on Owndays Singapore and mentioned that I would like to get PC lenses with them as well as do a pair of eye glasses in Korea/Japan and I did both! Now I have 3 pairs of spectacles which is alittle too much. Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about not being able to see if I were to lose one pair of spectacles!  Today I'll be reviewing on their PC aka blue shield lenses. They seemed to be emphasizing more on this type of lens lately and I didn't find a review on this so I decided to be the first to start. Owndays PC lenses come with a slight tinted brown colour and blue coating. The purpose of these lenses is to cut down a certain amount of blue light that is being emitted from electronic devices such as computer, mobile phones, TV, etc.  (Picture credited to Owndays Singapore)
You might be wondering, what is blue light and why do we emphasis so much on it now? Blue light is a type of light that is blue in colour(like duh.…

Review & Guide: Owndays Singapore

If you've been to Korea or Japan, you might have heard of getting a pair of spectacles done within the same day or even within minutes! Based on reviews I found online and through friends, it can cost less than $100 for a pair and I have been tempted to get mine done there ever since.

Earlier last year, Owndays decided to expand and opened its first shop in Singapore. To many, it was a relatively new concept to get spectacles within the same day but to me, it's like finally, I have a chance to experience it without having to travel!

A basic introduction to those who are not familiar with the store. Owndays is a brand from Japan that offers all-in-one price (frame + 1.6 high index aspheric lenses) at $98-$198. With 1,500 styles to choose from and processing time of 20 minutes, you can not only find a pair of spectacles to correct your vision but also change them according to different occasions.

I love their open concept. Unlike most optical…

Guide to KORAIL's O Train & V Train

Sightseeing trains are gaining popularity in Korea and it is one of the things you have to try when you're there! Today I'll be sharing on O Train & V Train which started its operations sightly more than a year ago on April 2013. These trains journey through Korea's inland valleys with the O-train looping around the central inland region, running through the provinces of Chungcheongbuk-do, Gangwon-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do. While the V-train, connecting Buncheon in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and Cheolam in Gangwon-do Province, runs through scenic valleys. Detailed information on these trains can be found on VisitKorea.

I realized there is a lack of information on the site as to how you can purchase the tickets online or offline and how to best plan the route if you would like to take both trains plus return to Seoul on the same day. So here's a simple post on how I purchased my tickets on the spot and the mistake I made(and you can avoid if you read this post), but …
